THIS IS BLUE DEVIL HOCKEY

2018-19 Season Volunteer Opportunities

 

Our Program is completely run by volunteer.   Each player's family is required to cover: 5 shifts including 2 in the concession.  Other opportunities include time clock, score keeper, and penalty box.  Team managers will track shifts & fill in those players' families who do not fill the shifts themselves.  If you have multiple players in the program, you will have to work 10 shifts.  Please do your share to help!  These shifts DO NOT include the additional tournament and jamboree expectations. 

 

If you feel that you need training in any of the volunteer opportunities please contact Naomi at 218-750-4509 or vaha.reg@gmail.com.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Effective immediately, ALL GIRLS participating in VAHA as well as the coop program with Eveleth Gilbert’s 12U program, are REQUIRED to dress in South 3. This has been dedicated for girls/women only. Please have skate guards so you can access the back rink as we do not have skate friendly floor by the Zamboni doors or out the back door.

NO equipment may be left in the locker room as it will be used for tournaments/jamborees and High School games.

In the event that VAHA and the 12U program have ice time during the same times, the locker room is still to be shared. The 12U program has been a part of this discussion and is aware that ALL girls will use it.

Thank you.
